Since I am not a Facebook member can you tell us what your "dumb comments" were ?
I just said dumb stuff and acted like I did not know Lindy's Downtown Market was in Washington, IL. I said I thought Lindy's was in Washington, DC and would have loved to purchase some frozen Giordano's pizzas if Lindy's was nearer to me. I asked if there was an ingredient list somewhere on the packaging and Lindy's said yes, they thought there was. I wanted to see if an ingredient list was provided in the new packaging for Giordano's if it was the same ingredient list Nate posted at the beginning of this thread. I tried to copy all what members of facebook posted about Lindy's carrying the Giordano's frozen pizzas, but I could not copy that.
I also contacted Crossover Collective LLC to see if that was old packaging that might have had the same ingredient list. I said I liked the way Giordano's packaging was designed and said I might want to offer my customers frozen pizzas. I asked if I could have a blown up photo of that packaging to see. This is what Todd Jones the Creative Director wrote me back.
The giordanos work was done years ago – I don’t have any samples left I can shoot – I have seen these for sale in the Greek Town location. Regarding nutritional information – I don’t believe you need to do this – take “Homemade Pizza” for example – I don’t think I have ever seen the nutritional information. I would search online for that answer.
As far as design goes – I would guess somewhere in the 500-800 range – just depends on what exactly you want to do. A simple way may be to wrap the pie and then affix a label. Maybe keep them generic – leave a space to write: Cheese or pepperoni - give it a real homemade/handmade feel.
I love doing this type of work and would be happy to talk about it more. Let me know if you want to talk
In the end I learned nothing.
